From the Santa Fe New Mexican:
June 9, 1921: Although there were only two cases of the typhus fever under treatment on the Navajo reservation when he left, Dr. George S. Luckett, public health bureau, today said he was not willing to declare the outbreak practically wiped out.
Because the disease spread slowly he believed it too early to announce the outbreak fully under control.
June 9, 1971: The Board of Education, in a move that brought out sharp debate among school personnel, Tuesday night accepted a budget that includes a $6,200 starting pay for teachers.
Board member Gregory Salinas said the starting pay was “just but unrealistic.”
Casting the sole vote against adoption of the budget, Salinas said the raise had “completely emasculated the whole rest of the budget.”
June 9, 1996: Joe Maestas’ black rosary swung wildly from the rearview mirrors of his old pickup as he drove along an irrigation ditch.
He talked about his faith that God will help his 2,500-member acequia district survive the drought while protecting it for future generations against encroaching development.
